Pregnant Student Rights
Title IX prohibits educational institutions from discriminating against pregnant students (including childbirth, false pregnancy, or recovery from related conditions).
The Title IX guidelines states:
34 C.F.R. Part 106
Recipients of federal funds “shall not apply any rule concerning a student's actual or potential parental, family, or marital status which treats students differently on the basis of sex…[and] shall not discriminate against any student, or exclude any student from its education program or activity, including any class or extracurricular activity, on the basis of such student's pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy or recovery there from, unless the student requests voluntarily to participate in a separate portion of the program or activity of the recipient."
